In 1995, Italian immigrant Enea Bacci was taking a leisurely boat ride along the Connecticut shoreline when he saw a property for sale. A phone call and price negotiation later and the place now known as Lobster Landing was his. Knowing absolutely nothing about lobsters, he and his wife, Cathie, enlisted the help of the local fishermen and learned every detail of the business.
They started off as just a seafood market and now twenty plus years later, they make one of the most sought-after lobster rolls in Connecticut. Lobster Landing is open April 13-December 31 every year serving a simple menu that draws customers from all over the country. A lobster roll, a hot Italian sausage on a sub roll and a hot dog make up the three item menu. The lobster roll is served Connecticut style- hot with a quarter pound of meat smothered in butter and lemon on a sub roll specially sent to them from a bakery in Vermont. (It took them more than five years to find the perfect bun!)
Plastic tables and chairs adorn the shoreline giving guests a view of Long Island Sound. Expect them to be extremely busy during the peak summer months, but a wait for a table is never long. Lobster Landing is BYOB so feel free to bring a six pack of your favorite Connecticut beer, or a bottle of rose. Just beware of their hours...cause they're kinda weird. They are open from 11am-6pm daily, so don't expect to sit down for a late leisurely dinner.
